Summary

"Never started a company before? Struggling with little or no cash? Have no experience, no baseline to judge your progress against? Thank God! You've got a shot at making this work."
So says Mike Michalowicz, author of The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, a business book that is so uniquely useful, so raw and entertaining, it reads like the brainchild of Steve Jobs and Chris Rock.
The founder of three multimillion-dollar companies, including Obsidian Launch, a company that partners with first-time entrepreneurs to grow their concepts into industry leaders, Mike Michalowicz knows what it really takes to spin your great idea into pure gold.
Whether you're just starting out or have been at this for years, Mike's "get real" approach to business is a much-needed, swift kick in the pants. In this book, you'll discover:


Why a business plan is a total waste of your time
Why fulfilling your own needs is the first and last order of business
Which three sheets of paper you need to successfully launch, manage, and grow your business
How to get started in business with little or no money
How to find and exploit resources that no one else knows about
How to stop procrastinating and take action NOW!

Great book

listened to it over the course of 2 days, easy listening and a kick up the bum that was much needed.

Very motivating and funny, but not for depth

I liked that the author is a "no BS" guy and states things planely as they are. For a person going trough the process of making a business, this was something I wish someone had told me before. Not much for people who look for detailed strategies, this gives more of a "motivational boost" to start.

Just what this 60 year old needed to renegade.

I had almost checked out on my 32 year old business.......nearly lost the passion. Listening fired me up.
I'm telling everyone it's important they stop what they are doing and listen to the entire book NOW!

I am a TPE

What did you love best about The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur?

Ironically, I read this book last of all 3 of Mike's books. Still loved it. I am have had a company for almost 2 years and though much of the book still applies to me, I only wish I read it 2 years ago. I love that Mike brings it as he is, like it or not!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike! As a young business owner I felt the chill in my spine and fire in my stomach when Mike mentioned he started at 24 years old; I am 24 now.

Any additional comments?

Having read all 3 of Mike's books I can honestly say they speak for themselves. Even if you don't like the accents and cheesy humor, you will eventually! If I ever have the pleasure of meeting Mike Michalowicz someday I only hope to buy him a beer! Cheers, Mike!
